Research to develop medicine by identifying protein or gene valuable to our body.

Molecular medicine are engaged in developing new technologies and materials useful for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of ‘hard to cure’ diseases by integrating new discoveries made on a molecular and cellular level in life phenomena and diseases. Representative projects currently in progress include the developments of immuno-therapeutic vaccines against hepatitis B and C virus, HIV/AIDS, immune modulators with new functions, diabetes and obesity controllers of new concept, and therapeutics for brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease.

Especially, immunotherapeutic technology, in which the killer T-cells of humans are used to eradicate germs or virus, is a next generation technology that can be applied in the treatment of chronic diseases complementing the existing chemotherapies. In case of the immuno therapeutic vaccines against hepatitis B virus, the project is entering the initial stage of clinical trial and preparing the commercialization in cooperation with a leading pharmaceutical company.
Successful commercialization of such therapeutic vaccine will relieve about 300 million people around the world from sufferings from type B chronic hepatitis.
